SESSION 3D
Design Automation for Power Electronics
Chair:

Organizers:
Miroslav Vasic - Univ. Politecnica de Madrid, Spain
Jose Ayala - Complutense Univ.
Design Automation has become of strategic importance for the Power Electronics Society as modern highly integrated designs are dealing with multi-physics problems, shorter design time and multivariable optimization to obtain higher efficiencies and better power density. Additionally, the development and employment of Wide Bandgap devices (GaN and SiC based) has opened a set of design problems that has not been seen with Si based technology. All these trends are driving the need to revisit design tools and capabilities. The purpose of this special session is to understand the problems of Design Automation in Power Electronics and identify methodologies that have been used so far by academia and industry. The focus of the special session is to bring together the experts in both Power Electronics and Design Automation and have them presenting their perspectives on the emerging needs. The expected results are: • a clear identification of the common ground and synergy between Power Electronics and Design Automation • an understanding where the limits of the current technology and tools are in Design Automation for Power Electronics
